Is there a link between feeling sexy and violence in games?

– Marz Raul Playing video games carries all sorts of stereotypes and pre-conceptions, the most common being gamers are nerdy, socially awkward and overwhelmingly male. However research carried out by UNSW scientists Michael Kasumovic and Tom Denson indicates this may not necessarily be the case; and perhaps, more interestingly, tackles the awkward questions around gamers and their sex drives...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn to be an open world RPG, says Guerrilla Games

– Tom Heath Horizon Zero Dawn made quite the impression during Sony’s E3 presentation last month, being a new IP from long time Playstation developer Guerrilla Games. Their first non-Killzone game in a long time, the pre-historic themed, post apocalyptic, robot dinosaur hunting game looks like quite a shift from their comfort zone. Few details were given as to the specifics of the game...[Read More]

How does the Witcher 3 compare to Skyrim?

– Luke Chandler With the release of the highly anticipated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in May, CD Projekt Red managed to win over the hearts of gamers everywhere, cementing their status as one of the most beloved video game developers of this generation.

What I want from The Last of Us 2

– Tom Heath It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I consider Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us to be a masterpiece of interactive storytelling. It was one of the first video games I ever publicly reviewed. Whenever I am asked what I think the best game of the past decade is, The Last of Us is one of the first games I consider. But a potential sequel to the game has been offhandedly me...[Read More]

Excited for backwards compatibility? Why not old-school-style new games instead.

– Gordon Starr With the recent release of the Xbox One and Playstation 4 there has been a lot of chatter about the issue of backwards compatibility. Microsoft, to the great applause of its fans, announced that the Xbox One would enable backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games. Obviously this was a stab at Sony during E3, a stunt designed to generate excitement about their product and incre...[Read More]

Uncharted 4’s extended gameplay trailer released, ups it to 11

– Tom Heath Despite a slight technical hitch during its E3 presentation this year, a hitch that some might argue actually made the game look better given it proved someone was actually PLAYING the demo, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was a highlight of the Sony conference. It featured ridiculous graphics (that hopefully make it to the retail version, we’ve been burned before),  the s...[Read More]

Allison Road, spiritual successor for P.T.: pants will be shat

– Tom Heath I, like many others, was devastated earlier this year when the Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro directed horror game Silent Hills was cancelled, especially after playing its phenomenal playable teaser, P.T., on PS4. The mind bending horror experience set in a suburban household was unlike anything I had ever experienced, featuring no “game” like features such as ob...[Read More]

– Charlie Braithwaite Welcome to the second edition of In Memoriam, the LoadScreen series where we shed a tear for beloved characters who have passed away. This week we are honouring the demise of a character from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You know, that game everyone who has ever touched a gamepad and was alive in the 90s talks about. Ocarina of Time is arguably one of the most ...[Read More]
